Other than the D6, Nikon also has something to make Z shooters happy today: the company has just announced NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR and NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S. We’ve been expecting them since January and October last year. The 20mm f/1.8 was even shown off at last year’s CP+. But now they’re both out and ready for you to start shooting with them. So, let’s dive in and see what you can expect.
The Nikon 20mm f/1.8 G was released back in the fall of 2014.
I originally ordered this lens way back in the spring of 2015, but due to production delays at Nikon, I didn’t get my hands on one until just a few weeks ago – which ended up being a great deal on an open box / store demo copy from B&H.
In this hands of review of the Nikon 20mm f/1.8 G Nikkor ultra-wide prime lens I am going to review why I purchased this lens in the first place, where this lens excels, and my hands on experience of using the Nikon 20mm f/1.8 G in the field.
